Vintage Double Witches Heart and Bow Gold Pearl Brooch Hallmarked

Some pieces catch me by the eye, others by the heart; this one was both. I was casually chatting with a vendor at Portobello Road, asking how they’d been, how were the kids? It was having a hard time paying attention to the small talk because my eye kept going to this gorgeous double heart in her case. As soon as we’d dispensed with the niceties I had my grubby fingers all over this beauty. At first I was a little bit disappointed with it, even though it is beautifully handcrafted and set with the most lumimous, well matched, pearls; I knew right away from the size of it’s English hallmarks that it wasn’t as old as I’d wanted it to be. I also knew right away that it was hand crafted with a high degree of skill, so I forgave it it's vintage date!

This large and impressive Vintage brooch was hand crafted in the 1970s after an earlier Victorian style brooch. It features a double witches heart with a bow above, a very old and romantic motif. The brooch is set with 72 creamy white pearls. The brooch is on the larger side, measuring 37.4 mm north to south and 34.2 mm across and it weighs 9.5 grams. This one is fully hallmarked as having been made in London, England in 1972, it has a makers mark of ‘H.B’ and is marked both ‘9’ and ‘.375’ for 9 karat gold. This designer brooch could also be worn as a pendant.

Brooches just like this one were made in 1772, 1872, 1972 and will probably still be being made 2072! As long as they are beautifully made by skilled craftsman, like this one, I’ll keep buying them!
